CMHC offers information on building practices which work under cold climate conditions.

  • Northern Housing Overview
    CMHC has conducted a review of the housing market in a few northern communities as well as a comparison of native households and non-native households in terms of housing conditions and housing needs.
  • Designing Sustainable Northern Houses and Communities
    CMHC has conducted several design charrettes, drawing on the knowledge and input from the people who will eventually be using the housing, and has encouraged the use of the integrated design process for the design of northern housing and communities.
  • Case Studies — Innovative Northern Houses
    There are already several notable houses built in the North which make use of innovative techniques which can be used as a learning base for future designs. CMHC has gathered information about some of these houses which make use of healthy and energy efficient designs.
